Simone is an Edinburgh based artist, choreographer, performer, Feldenkrais practitioner and academic. For the past 20 years she has worked across performance and dance with a focus on environment related arts.
Her practice encompasses movement, ecology of place, walking arts and participatory events for both urban and rural contexts. Her work considers walking as a shared choreographic practice and our sensory perception of environments in relation to people, place and performance.
Her most recent project Into the Mountain was a culmination of 6 years of research into women experiences of the Cairngorms mountains. The project culminated in site relational performances in the Glen Feshie area.For more info see www.intothemountain.co.uk
Simone’s interdisciplinary approach to creating work often invites collaboration with other practitioners and specialists to create performance projects, including her longstanding collaboration with dance artist Neil Callaghan.
